Catalogue Note

Since its introduction in 1953 and the first summit ascent on the same year, the Rolex Explorer has embodied the pioneer and adventurous spirit of the brand.
The most famous Explorer reference certainly is the 1016 which was produced between 1963 and 1989.
This present lot would be a very nice addition to any watch collection, not only because of its rarity, but also due to the very attractive tropical patina of the dial.
